2016 Session 2 Cast Lists

Hi Acting Manitou 2016 Session 2,
Camp has been going beautifully and all our young artists had a wonderful, energetic day of auditions on Wednesday.  We were especially impressed by all the support they showed to fellow campers throughout the process.  Last night, cast lists were posted and the giving spirit continued as campers were just as proud of bunkmates as they were of their own accomplishments.
Please remember that, for those campers who came to Acting Manitou hoping for a certain show, many were ultimately surprised by their final placement.  Last night, campers ran the gamut of emotional reactions to the lists - it's a rite of passage for any theater person to wind up in a role or show not on one's personal radar (or no show at all, for that matter, which doesn't happen here!).  The rehearsal process, although only a brief three weeks, actually evolves at a slower pace than you might expect for so little time, and as campers grow into their roles they learn to "fall in love with your play", as our mission statement encourages.  We expect them to be patient, to communicate their feelings to us, to stay open-minded and to allow the experience to unfold - to trust in the process.  It's a leap, especially when expectations were high, but with our artistic team and counselors, the campers are in good hands.
Can't wait to see you at the shows!
